Invention Over Four Decades of

© Bruno Calendini

Greg Lowe invented the world’s first internal-frame backpack so he and others could carry their gear with security, accessibility and comfort. Since that first design breakthrough, we’ve carried on the tradition by providing photographers — from seasoned pros to newbie point-and-shooters — with thoughtful, well-made products for their digital pursuits. And we’re still at it.

The SlipLock™ Way

2

Our SlipLock™ system is based on a basic principle: you want to carry more stuff. Many Lowepro bags include SlipLock™ attachment loops. Compatible accessories feature integrated tabs that secure to those loops. So it’s easy to add on and carry on!

Lock & Go System™ Debuting on our Pro Roller x-Series, Lowepro’s exclusive Lock & Go System™ features a Travel Sentry™ lock that secures all compartments and pockets with a universal, retractable cable.

360° All Weather AW Cover™ In 2008, we added the 360° feature to our All Weather AW Cover™ design, protecting contents from bottom to lid so you can work out of the bag in the rain. You’ll find this feature on the new Nova AW and Toploader Pro AW series.

Hideaway Tripod Mount™ It’s adjustable, removable and downright indispensable. Our Hideaway Tripod Mount™ attaches to your bag and stabilizes a tripod or monopod so you can carry and access with ease.

Premium Padding Customers love to share their “unbelievable stories” with us. Many include retellings of gear (in Lowepro bags) surviving a fall from heights, a squashing from car tires — even an unexpected plunge under the ice. We like to think our padding did its work extremely well in these cases . . . as well as in the everyday, more normal life of a camera in its bag. 

Tough, Durable Fabrics Wind, dust, rocks, sand, sidewalks, overhead compartments in airplanes — your gear can deal with some pretty abusive environments. Lowepro bags feature tough outer materials that resist abrasions, water and the general knock-about trials of life.

All Weather AW Cover™

All Zippered Up

Our patented cover is like a raincoat for your gear. It fits snugly over a bag and tucks inside its compartment when not in use. Fun fact: more than 60 of our bags come with an All Weather AW Cover™.

Durable and smooth. That’s what you want a camera bag zipper to be — so they open and close without any effort. We use premium zippers and create pulls that are sturdy, ergonomic and sometimes even silent (ideal around wildlife and film crews).

About Lowepro

Your cameras, lenses, smartphones, GPS units, notebooks and other accessories need safe havens from the rigors of working, touring, hiking and commuting. Our shoulder bags, backpacks, slings, rollers, pouches and other cases provide durable protection — inside and out. We pride ourselves on adding shock-absorbing foam padding to guard a telephoto lens on challenging assignments. Or using stretchy, cushioned neoprene to hug an ultra-compact camera that goes on a day trip. Whatever it takes to ensure your valuable gear gets to and from its destination — safe and sound — we’re on it.

Accessibility

© Bruno Calendini

Capture the shot. Catch the moment. Seize the day. Our quick-access features let you grab your cameras, lenses and gear with ease. We brainstorm with photographers, field-test our ideas and play around with new ways of access — always keeping protection at top of mind. From rotating slings to side-access panels, outside hatch pockets to integrated Glide-Lock™ attachment systems, our bags are thoughtfully designed and fully equipped to get you to your gear, fast.

4 Quick Access

Fastpack

Our backpacks are all about ease and peace of mind. On the Fastpack series of bags, gear is reached through a clever side-entry zippered compartment. As you trek along, just rotate, unzip, grab your camera and shoot. Flipside and Primus AW packs feature unique back-entry compartments that provide safe and easy access to gear when setting up, plus extra security when on the move.

Toploader Pro AW

Convenient Access Have everything within reach. That’s what you need to get that shot and the next one. Our bags are designed so compartments and pockets are close by. Take our new Toploader Pro AW as an example of convenience. It features a side opening with easy-grip access; handy U-shaped zipper pulls; a top pocket to stash sunglasses and personal gear; SlipLock™ attachment loops. Lots of details that make access a breeze. Fastpack 350 with notebook protection

The Access Is In The Bag • Classified AW • Fastpack • Flipside • Inverse AW • Primus AW • SlingShot AW • Stealth Reporter AW . . . just to name a few. When you’re looking for a camera bag that connects you to your gear quickly, easily and with minimal effort, you have a lot of choices with Lowepro.


Comfort

About Lowepro

Some photographers carry a massive telephoto lens to Wimbledon. Some bloggers take a notebook, camcorder and tripod to the Olympic Games. Cameras and digital gear are heavy and fragile. We make every effort to put comfort, cushioning, weight distribution, support and ease in our shoulder bags, beltpacks, backpacks and sling bags. From ergonomic lumbar padding to multiple-point harnesses, compression straps to contoured shoulder straps, you’ll find it’s much easier to carry a heavy load to your next destination if it’s in a Lowepro bag.

Lens Trekker 600 AW II

The Adjustable-Torso Harness System Featured in bags like our Lens Trekker 600 AW II, our exclusive system is fully adjustable for a custom fit and includes a padded back pad with lumbar support. Use the Pack Jack™ tool to disconnect harness from the pack, adjust to correct height and reconnect.

Choose Your Comfort Zone • Nova AW • Inverse AW • Classified AW • DryZone™ • Lens Trekker 600 AW II • Street & Field • Vertex AW . . . and so many more choices from Lowepro. You shoot. We’ll get carried along . . . happily and comfortably.

All the Details Add Up Every little detail we design for comfort can make the difference between a happy and unhappy day out with your camera. CollarCut™ shoulder straps adjust to your upper body. DryFlo™ mesh-covered padding cushions and wicks away moisture. Padded waistbelts provide all-day lumbar support. That’s why we build every bag with comfort as a hallmark.

Taking Deliberate Steps to Recycle and Conserve Resources

We take pride in constructing camera and digital accessory bags that withstand the tests of travel, trekking, weather and time. To make products that are extremely durable and long-lasting requires sourcing the toughest fabrics and materials on earth – ones that are commonly made from non-renewable resources. But we want to do more to source and use recycled materials that help us tread more lightly on the earth . . . and we have. In 2007, the Primus AW was the world’s first camera backpack made with 100% post-consumer, recycled Cyclepet™ exterior fabric – the equivalent of 22, 16 oz. PET bottles. In 2008, we added two backpacks and launched our most resource-friendly bags to date, the Terraclime series of three digital pouches and a DSLR shoulder bag. More than 95% of the content is recycled, inside and out. We are only at the beginning of a long path and continue to integrate earth-conscious materials into our new designs.

Resources conserved in the process of printing this brochure include: Printed on paper containing 27.5% (average) post consumer recycled content. Paper is Acid free and Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) and carries three chain-of-custody certifications supporting responsible forestry management: FSC, SFI and PEFC. Inks are environmentally friendly Hostmann-Steinberg and contain vegetable based oils with low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s). As a result of printing on this paper, Lowepro saved the following resources:

Raising Awareness about Bear Habitats Lowepro is proud to have been a significant participant in the campaign to preserve the Spirit Bear — a rare subspecies of the American Black Bear whose habitat was threatened by clear-cut logging. In 2001, a 240,000-acre Spirit Bear protection area was established and logging banned in significant valleys of the Great Bear Rainforest. We continue our support of creatures in need with the Arctic survivalist — the polar bear. In 2006, we joined forces with Polar Bears International (PBI) to help raise awareness about the plight of these bears and the effects of global warming. A portion of the proceeds of our Primus AW, Primus Minimus AW, CompuPrimus AW, Terraclime 100, 50, 30 and 10 bags goes directly to PBI to help in their efforts to protect polar bear habitat. To find out more about polar bears, their fragile environment and what you can do to help, please visit the PBI web site.

We ask ourselves this question on a regular basis. Since our inception, a respect for and fascination of the natural world, indigenous communities and cultural heritage has evolved into support for organizations that promote conservation and restoration. As we design products, we increasingly integrate materials that reduce our environmental impact. We believe our efforts help create a brighter future for the land, animals and people on this planet.

We admire the hard work and artistry of photographers. Everything you do with your camera, your enthusiasm and your subjects keeps us motivated and inspired. As we take photographs and experiment with the latest gear too, we love designing bags that address the demands of the art. Whether it’s dangling from a precipice, maneuvering through a crowd of protesters or waiting for the light to shift just so. Each year we anticipate the many images you share with us for this brochure. From a herd of elephants to a diehard rocker to a surreal landscape. Thank you for carrying our bags to every corner of the earth and back again. We’ll keep making inventive, accessible, durable products so we can all capture and share the world.

Michael “ Nick” Nichols

“In 1980 I shot an essay on mountain gorillas and I discovered the camera could make a big difference in conservation. Since then I have been on a mission to tell the stories of endangered species. The proceeds of my book set, The Last Place on Earth, are going to conservation. Why do I care? One time, I got to what’s wild and looked it in the eye. Now I don’t think I can ever come back. It’s an incredible privilege to go into these wild, wild places.”

Michael “Nick” Nichols is Editor at Large for photography at National Geographic magazine. He has devoted himself to producing photography that effects environmental change. Nick’s work with conservationists such as Mike Fay and Jane Goodall has resulted in books, the creation of 13 national parks in Africa and reforms in chimp conservation. He is a former member of Magnum Photos, and founded the Look3: Festival of the Photograph in Virginia. He lives in Sugar Hollow, VA with his wife, artist Reba Peck.

“Early in my photography career I dreamt of making a difference. I’ve always felt that as humans we have a responsibility to this marvelous and most precious planet. I was young then and as is often the case my dreams were put on hold. Today those dreams have been reborn with a renewed global interest in changing the way humanity interacts with the natural world.” Daniel J. Cox’s vision and passion for nature, dedication to the art of photography and concern for the environment has earned him high regard during his 28 year profession. His accomplishments include two National Geographic cover stories and sole photographer of nine books. He’s a Nikon Legend, part of Hewlett-Packard’s Professionals Team and an American Photo’s Mentor. As an advisory board member of Polar Bears International (PBI), Daniel helps communicate their mission to educate, inspire and inform the world about climate change and how it will affect the polar bear.

“I always wanted to go to the Olympics as a sports photographer. The Beijing Games were my fourth Olympics. The nice thing about the Games is the diversity of sports you photograph. In the Netherlands I only take pictures of football, or soccer as it is called in the United States. In Beijing I photographed sailing out of a press boat. It was quite tough to make a crisp photo because of the instable position in the boat. However, it made this picture special because of the low angle — it looks like the boat is sinking with the sailing flags as silent witnesses.” The dazzling images of Pim Ras have earned him 23 Silver Camera Awards and two L’Equipe Sports Photo Awards. He has covered the Sydney, Athens and Beijing Summer Olympic Games and the Turin Winter Olympic Games, along with numerous international soccer championships.

Bruno Calendini Lowepro gear: Lens Trekker 600 AW, DryZone 200 and Rover AW II “My photographic work is that of a portraitist, rather than a naturalist. I focus on the aesthetics, the atmosphere and the sensuality of my meetings with African wildlife. Africa is the cradle of humanity, a magic continent where ‘wild’ reaches its fullest dimension. Landscapes, people, animals, colors, sounds and smells catapult you into another world.” During his reports, Bruno Calendini tests the lastest photographic materials for the specialized press and Internet. His images have won numerous sport and nature photography awards. His book SAUVAGES gathers the very best of his African pictures. Bruno’s exhibition of animal portraits, supported by Nikon, is currently touring in Europe. In 2009, he will be leading a wildlife photographic training course in the Okavango Delta in Botswana.

“I dive into projects as labors of love, try to tell stories about endangered habitats, animals close to extinction, cultures that are close to peril.” One of the youngest-ever contributors to National Geographic, photographer Mattias Klum holds the distinction of being the first Swede to have his work on the cover in 1997. Since then his images and articles have appeared numerous times in National Geographic, as well as Wildlife Conservation, Audubon and Geo. From 1990 to 2007 Mattias published nine books on natural history and cultural subjects—each showcasing his unique artistic and environmentally sensitive approach—from the rainforests of Borneo to journeys through his native Sweden. In 2008 he was nominated as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. Mattias has undertaken major expeditions around the world, produced documentary films, is a member of the Board of Trustees of World Wild Fund for Nature in Sweden, and a fellow of the Linnean Society of London.

“When I watched the pro bike peloton hurtle down the street outside my London office one summer’s day, I knew it was time to ditch taking fishing pictures and get out and shoot some real action. I’ve been doing that ever since.” UK photographer Geoff Waugh photographs the world of alternative and adventure sports with the same speed, verve and intrigue as the athletes he captures. His work has been published in the Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday, Loaded, FHM, Mountain Bike Rider, Angler’s Mail and Ice Hockey News Review. His clients include Trek Bicycles, Red Bull and BMW. Geoff is a five-time winner of the prestigious Sports Photographer of the Year competition as well as British Professional Photographers Association Press and PR Photographer of the year in 2007.

“I like to get emotion in a photo. I like it when people laugh at apicture – or react with tears. An image works when people don’t have to read the caption. After the coverage of eight Olympic games, I’m just as excited had it been my first.” A Montreal La Presse staff photographer since 1984 Bernard has documented 30 Grand Prix of Canada in Montreal and eight Olympic Games, and contributed 125 dramatic images to the book, Les Québécois à Lillehammer, published in 1994. Bernard has received numerous prizes and honorable mentions, more than 200 from 5 different continents. For 2007 he was chosen Canadian Photographer of the Year by the NPAC (National Photographers Association of Canada) and he had the best picture of the year also with a portrait of a British security guard. Although specializing in sports photography Bernard also photographs news, travel, fashion and portraiture.

Maki Kawakita “Growing up seeing Kabuki (Japanese traditional opera) and performing Kabuki-like dance on the stage, my work has been inspired by theatre aesthetics; it possesses the same striking color and/or contrast, dynamic composition and the dramatic stories within the imagery. Shakespeare said the world is like a stage in which we’re all players: I perform through the lens.” Maki’s current shows and accolades include: a 2008 exhibition at NMM Gallery in Milan, Italy; 2008 award for Portraiture from the Prix de la Photographie, Paris; and selection in 2007 by Commercial Photography as one of the best 100 Photographers of Japan.

“A great photograph asks as many questions as it answers. The photograph is perceived as the representation of a moment in time that existed or is real ...after all, it must be real.” Greg Gorman’s work documents that peculiar obsession of the 20th-century celebrity. Each shot gives a picture of human nature in its infinite range and is a testament to the individual character. For over two decades, Greg has continued to master the art of photography. From personality portraits and advertising campaigns to magazine layouts and fine art work, He has developed and showcased a discriminating and unique style in his profession. Besides traveling the world photographing projects for such clients as Epson and Disney, Greg continues to work on compilations of his imagery. He will next release a book on his award winning l.a. Eyeworks campaign and following that, a book of male portraits spanning the length of his career. These releases join his previously published books: Greg Gorman Volume I, Greg Gorman Volume II, Inside Life, Perspectives, As I See It, and Just Between Us.

“Photographing fashion is creating a mystery and drama. It’s a leap from reality that can take you anywhere you want to go and that is its seduction. Photographing people, as portraiture, is a search for what is below the surface. It is there that their truth lies. Photographing nudes, I see the way I would like to be touched. I try to make the light be the sensual caress of a hand. Having spent most of my career photographing fashion, portraits and nudes, it was natural that the sensual beauty and mystery of flowers would captivate me. I get lost in their endless nuances and

surprises. The sensual movement of their shapes and colors are almost like a dance. And the quiet place that they take me is hypnotic.” Legendary international photographer Barbara Bordnick’s images have been called “elegant,” “classic,” and “lyrical.” She has earned numerous awards for her work in film, print, advertising and art. Her photographs are in the permanent collections of the International Center of Photography and the Gilman Collection in New York. Barbara’s sensitive flower explorations inspired the books Searching: Secret Landscapes of Flowers Volumes I, II and III. Lowepro gear: Photo Trekker Classic and Pro Roller Mini

Whether I shoot indigenous people or exotic locations, my goal is to make the images color-saturated, graphic and intimate.” Rosanne has created vivid and aspirational travel images for many government tourism offices, as well as Nikon, Asian Photography, Discovery, Digital Camera, Geographic Expeditions, The Travel Channel and The New Yorker. Named a “Legend Behind the Lens” by Nikon, Rosanne leads dozens of workshops and photo tours and speaks at many educational photo events including PMA, Photo Plus Expo, the International School of Photography and the American Photo/Popular Photography Mentor Series.

“Photography is my pastime, passion and profession. I love making pictures. The camera chose me – I just hung onto my camera straps and went along for the ride! I am a curious person by nature and I love to meet people from all cultures and walks of life and learn a little bit about them. What better way is there to do that than as a photojournalist?” Nick Didlick is an editorial and commercial photographer and a digital imaging consultant. His photos have appeared in many of the world’s major publications, including the International Herald Tribune, The New York Times, The Times of London, The Sydney Morning Herald as well as Stern, Time, Newsweek, Vanity Fair and Rolling Stone magazines.

David Ward

Lowepro gear: Super Trekker AW II, SlingShot 200 AW, Apex 60 AW “Part of my motivation for photography is the desire to reach an imperfect understanding of the world, to glimpse order within the chaos that surrounds me. Without photography there are so many things in life that I would never have truly seen, perhaps never have even noticed. Photography provides for me a way to dissect the world, to distill a visual essence, and in the process, to begin to understand.” David Ward is a master of landscape photography and one of the UK’s most distinguished professionals — his commercial work has covered subjects from dogs to racing cars. Through his workshops with Light & Land and his online blogs, David shares his skills and insights with fellow lovers of landscape. His 2004 book Landscape Within discusses his philosophy of landscape photography. His recently published book, Landscape Beyond, highlights David’s keys to successful photography: beauty, mystery and simplicity.

“Being a photographer is the best job in the world. Other people go to the office. I go to the Oval Office, sleep in an ice cave on a glacier and fly to the Miss Universe pageant in Donald Trump’s plane. I’m not afraid of any photographic challenge. Coming from a news background, I’ve learned to go into any situation, decide what the picture is and get it.” Kevin T. Gilbert’s career is legendary: Fourteen years with The Washington Times (five as chief photographer); five-time president of the White House News Photographers’ Association (he won over 35 WHNPA awards); founder/professor of Corcoran College of Art and Design’s photojournalism course. He leapt into digital photography, founding (with photographic friends) the wildly successful Blue Pixel digital imaging education group, and shooting stills for “Eco-Challenge”, “The Contender” and “The Apprentice.”

Terraclime is a soft-sided, protective, multi-purpose bag designed expressly for the eco-conscious, style-savvy consumer. It reduces environmental impact by virtue of its materials — over 95% recycled. Each bag is constructed of 100% post-consumer, recycled Cyclepet™ exterior fabric, using the equivalent of 2½ PET bottles in the smallest model to 22 bottles in the largest. The spacer mesh, providing a lean yet sturdy layer of protection, is 60% recycled PET. Terraclime’s hardware (including hook closures and zippers) is comprised of plastic regrind (recycled and repurposed industrial trimmings saved from the factory floor). Features include memory card pocket, adjustable shoulder strap, and double-loop hook closure. The Terraclime 100 shoulder bag includes a padded camera wrap as an additional layer of protection for a camera body or lens, a zippered interior pocket, and adjustable shoulder strap. A portion of the proceeds from each bag goes to Polar Bears International (PBI). See page 7 for more information.

“A little while ago someone said my photographs were ‘music for the eyes.’ I guess this is possibly the greatest compliment one can get as a music photographer.” Rock stars and beautiful women are the focus of Guido Karp’s world-renowned portfolio of images. His passion for capturing the energy of live performance started in high school and has led him on a professional journey that includes shooting for luminaries like Eric Clapton, Genesis, INXS, Dire Straits, Bon Jovi, the Rolling Stones and AC/DC . Guido shot the cover for the all-time best-selling single, “Candle in the Wind” by Elton John. He enjoys experimenting with new technology, and his most recent book, The Nudes: Photography with a Cybershot Mobile, is based on photos taken with a megapixel camera phone, unedited and printed in large format.

“I love to break new ground in rich media ...combining stills, video and audio in dynamic ways. There is still everything to do, everything to try. It’s an exciting time for visual storytelling.” Andrew Kornylak made a quick and determined leap from software developer to editorial and commercial photographer at the start of the digital revolution — keeping him ahead of the curve and deep into the art of evolving techniques. Since then he’s shot for clients such as National Geographic Adventure, Business Week, Garden & Gun, Discovery Channel, Nikon, The North Face and Red Bull. His diverse subject matter ranges from the grit and thrill of rock climbing to contemplative environmental and human portraits. Andrew’s work is shown in permanent collections at several galleries and retailers. He is represented by Aurora Select.

Jack is a regular contributor to Arizona Highways and National Geographic magazines. In addition to nine published books on wilderness advocacy, he also has photographed and authored Jack Dykinga’s ARIZONA and IMAGES: Jack Dykinga’s Grand Canyon released by Arizona Highways in 2008—reflecting his love for Arizona.

“I photograph to explore the beauty of wild places. I’m still trying to ask new questions and find new ways of expressing what I see. I want to put a fresh face on classic landscape images. My primary approach is to see and feel deeply, and then convey my emotional response in the photograph. I don’t always have a photograph in mind, but I always have photography in mind.” William Neill looks for the spirit of the land and the essence of nature in his work. Although much of his time is spent photographing around his home in Yosemite, he also has a passion for India and the Himalayas. He has won both the Ansel Adams Award and the National Park Service’s Director Award. His work has appeared in numerous publications like National Geographic, Smithsonian, Outside, Condé Nast Traveler and Audubon. He has published eight books; the most recent are digital editions of Impressions of Light and Landscapes of the Spirit. William writes an Outdoor Photographer column, hosts a photoblog on nature and landscape photography, and has been honored as a Canon “Explorer of Light.”

“Great photography melds technical expertise and creativity to produce an image that speaks to the viewer. The promise of the digital era is that it removes many of the technical barriers we used to take for granted. I really believe that photographers today have no limits to the ways in which they can express their creative visions if they work with the full capabilities of their equipment.” George Lepp is one of North America’s best known outdoor photographers and educators. As a Canon “Explorer of Light” and Print Master, and as Field Editor of Outdoor Photographer and PCPhoto Magazine, he shares his knowledge and art with photographers around the world.

Fall is beautiful up here, very peaceful and contemplative. We spend several months in the field with the bears.” Karen: “Time is our most important tool in discovering nature. Photographing natural behavior requires learning in depth about the animals and the landscape. A photo can communicate behavior more clearly than words.” More than photographers, Kennan and Karen Ward work diligently to preserve the wilderness they love by publishing and sharing images of animals and lands that are threatened. They have produced five books, including The Last Wilderness: Alaska National Wildlife Refuge. Currently they also produce documentary films together in the field, Kennan and Karen have photographed their way across all seven continents, dozens of countries and hundreds of national parks and protected and wilderness areas.

Patricio Robles Gil Lowepro gear: Omni Extreme cases, Pro Trekker AW II, Toploader 75 AW

“Wilderness is essential to a healthy and prosperous human society, and I’m very concerned about the loss of wild nature. In my work as a conservationist I find it more challenging because in my native language, Spanish, there is no term that expresses the full meaning of the wilderness concept. So, for the last 25 years I’ve been using photography to bring wild places to urban societies.” Patricio Robles Gil is a photographer and artist with a passion for and commitment to conservation. The 30 books he published and several organizations he founded strive to preserve the wild with practical results. In 2007, the WILD Foundation selected Patricio’s non-governmental organization, Unidos para la Conservacion (UPC), to help bring the World Wilderness Congress (WWC) to Latin America for the first time. WILD 9, the 9th WWC, will convene in November of 2009 in Merida, Yucatan.

“Underwater photography is one of my biggest passions. I find the kaleidoscope of color coupled with the bizarre creatures intriguing. You never know what you’ll encounter on each dive; there’s always something new to learn. I have a deep respect for coral reef systems, and shooting in such delicate locations requires solid diving skills and the ability to work with rather heavy, cumbersome gear. To capture the colors I see at depth, I have to manage five-foot arms that support the strobes in order to shoot wide angle.” When Lowepro human resources manager Joanne Panizzera started diving in the early 1980’s, she wanted to be able to share the underwater world with people who wouldn’t otherwise go there. Her passion for photography spans most of her life. She has traveled all over the world to shoot in her favorite medium — places like the Solomon Islands, Palau and Bonaire. When not underwater, she can be found traversing the landscapes of California and Wyoming on horseback.
